Madison Avenue

Location: Upper East Side, New York

Spanning 4,000 square feet, this Upper East Side apartment is home to a jet-setting international family of seven who sought to create a highly stylized yet comfortable and familiar pied-a-terre.

The design represents the client’s courage for bold statements and sensibility for daily life. Featuring custom millwork and bespoke furnishings throughout, from graphic, geometric bookshelves to built-in bunk beds, a glass and steel door developed hand in hand with the craftspeople who made it, and a custom lacquered dining table with gloss stripes, the result is a sophisticated and tailored space that is equally approachable.

The art program in this dynamic family home is a celebration of female artists. Torched paper by Cornelia Parker, a powerful geometric diptych by Clare Rojas and photography by Lisa Kereszi live alongside the family, adding to the abundance of creativity at the heart of their home.
